Threadlift Treatment In Andheri West,Mumbai
What is a thread lift?
Over time, changes to the shape of the face and its appearance occur due to age-related alterations in facial skin strength and elasticity together with fat, bone and cartilage loss.
A thread lift is a minimally invasive, rejuvenating treatment that uses specialised surgical threads to lift and regenerate sagging skin on the mid-face, jowls and neck, giving a tighter, more youthful appearance.
How do face thread lifts work?
Administered correctly by a medical professional, over time face thread lifts gradually stimulate collagen production to restore facial volume and smooth out deep lines and wrinkles. we use bioabsorbabale PDO threads(Mono And Cog Threads) . These are designed to treat the signs of ageing and give you a naturally refreshed appearance. It is suitable for men and women and offers a unique dual effect – the immediate lift and the long-term collagen regeneration. Threads are made from resorbable sutures, which dissolve to help stimulate your skin’s own collagen production. The threads are inserted under the skin using a needle (without any incisions), to elevate the sagging tissue in problem areas.
Is the “Thread Lift” the New Face-Lift?
Unlike a surgical thread lift the thread lift doesn’t involve incisions or “deep-tissue manipulation,”. “This means that, one: It is a much easier process for the patient (like getting fillers as opposed to getting a facelift), but, two: It can’t achieve a result of the same magnitude or longevity of a traditional face-lift.”
About 6 months after the procedure, the PDO threads will disappear through simple hydrolysis (they are absorbable). The lifted facial contours will remain for about 3-6 months more, due to the cellular rejuvenation effects. Your skin cells are stimulated to produce new collagen, and new blood vessels to improve skin microcirculation. At the same time, the PDO threads cause the fat tissue to contract, producing a skin tightening and facial slimming effect.
How is threadlift done?
A PDO Thread Lift is a minimally invasive procedure. After numbing and infusion of local anesthetia, the PDO threads are inserted via sharp or blunt tip needles (called cannulas) into different layers of the skin. Once inserted, the threads anchor the skin and lift it upwards. The excess threads are then cut off.
Depending on the areas treated, the procedure takes 15-30 minutes. There is some discomfort during the proceudre, but because of the improved techniques, my patients are experiencing less and less pain.
What Do I Need to Take Note of Before and After The Procedure?
Like other treatments involving injections, avoid alcohol, supplements such as Vitamin E, Omega Fish oils, for 1-2 days before and after the procedure. Avoid going to the steam room, sauna, and engaging in heavy exercise such as High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).
Following 2 weeks after the PDO Thread Lift, you are also discouraged from undergoing any dental treatment (which requires you to open your mouth excessively.)
You are also advised to sleep on your back to allow the swelling to subside and to avoid the putting pressure on the face that might cause misalignment of the threads. I give the option of some simple taping on the face to ensure the best results.
PDO threads can be used for lifting, rejuvenation (improving skin texture and wrinkles), volumising, and even reducing fat. Different threads are used for different purposes. Every doctor’s technique is different, and the possibilities are endless –
What Areas Can Be Treated with PDO Thread Lift?
The PDO thread lift is very versatile, allowing practically all areas of the face to be treated, including the:
- Undereye area
- Crow’s feet (wrinkles around eyes)
- Nasolabial folds
- Naso jugal folds
- Wrinkles around mouth
- Jaw line
What Results Can I Expect After The Treatment? How Long Do They Last?
Your skin is immediately lifted after a PDO thread lifting procedure, as the threads provde support to lift skin in its new position. You may look slightly tighter than the final result, but in about 1 week, you will begin to look much more natural.
The rejuvenative effects kick in after 1-2 months – you will notice better skin texture, firmer and smoother skin.
In about 9 months after the treatment, the threads would have dissolved, but the results will still continue for many more months. we recommend repeating the procedure 6-9 months after the first procedure, to allow for a long lasting result of up to 3 years.
Compared to non-invasive face lifting options like Ultherapy, the PDO thread lift works faster, and has more visible results. However, the procedures work even better when combined for synergistic results.
Which Treatments Work Well With PDO Thread Lift?
he PDO Thread lift can be combined with other treaments such as HIFU or Ulthera to give a natural lifting result. It works particuarly well with biostimulting fillers such as Radiesse and Hyaluronic Acid fillers – to provide a comprehensive anti-aging soltuion which now allows us to turn back the clock for our patients, like never before, without surgery. The treatment is now indispensible in my practice.
